Yale HSA6400 Wireless Alarm Kit
Easy Install, great value
Normally when you read reviews and the feedback is that it's easy, you find thats not the case. However, if you follow the instructions one step at at time then this really straight forward to install.
The only issue I have with it is the speed of response on the main controller keypad. When you're trying to silence an alarm trigger it doesn't always pick up the key presses when you're trying to enter the pin code.
The siren is loud..

Good easy to install alarm
This is the second Yale HAS 6400 Alarm Kit that I have installed. My sister is very pleased with the one I fitted for her and I decided to fit one for myself. I purchased another two kits, using one for additional sensors and siren. I managed to fit my sisterâs alarm in one day, but I took more time with mine. I fitted 5 door/window contacts and 4 PIRs over 2 days. This included a tricky uPVC back door and aluminium patio door requiring some plastic spacers to align the sensors with the magnets. On the third day I switched on the Control Panel and completed the âFirst Time Easy Installâ. I learnt in the 9 sensors and then the first siren. I attached this to the side of my house remembering to stick a piece of plastic on the wall behind the tamper plunger. I then learnt in the second siren and attached this to the other side of my house.
I then named all the devices and their zone types and completed the Walk Test to ensure all the sensors were within range and working correctly. In order to improve security, I mounted the Control Panel well away from the front door and switched off the Entry Sound. I fitted a Remote Keypad near the front door for easy access and learnt this into the system.
In order to check both sirens I activated the alarm using the remote keypad from outside and was able to disable the alarm quickly. The alarm is quite loud but the blue flashing light (more purple) is very dim.
Unfortunately, Yale has fitted red LEDs in the siren which are not efficient shining through a blue filter. It would have been better if white LEDs were used as in todayâs LED torches. Another issue is the telephone reporting messages are very faint and difficult to hear on mobile phones. I raised these points with Yale and was informed that red LEDs meet the manufacturerâs specification and the volume of the telephone messages cannot be adjusted.
In summary, this alarm is easy to install and easy to operate. I would have liked a blue flashing light and a louder telephone message, but hopefully as a deterrent, these will never be used for real.

About the best value around that I could find for this price range and Yale is a name I trust for reliability, Works well for the 30 metre range as our sheds nare on the limit range wise but still registers positively with the control box. No wires and easy to install with fully explanational cd and pamphlet. Very happy with this with plans to expand the system later.
